The support and motivation Sadie found in the forums plays a large role in her weight loss progress. Finding support and realising she was not alone in her weight loss journey gave Sadie the confidence and strength to make her success a reality.

"Hello - I have started my weight loss journey hoping to lose weight after gaining it from the birth of my two daughters. I put on 60 pounds after my first daughter was born and 40 more after my second. I think it was last year, at Christmas, when I stepped on my parents' scale and started crying when it read 248. I was SO scared. But I tried to ignore it because I believed, at the time, there was nothing I could do about it and that if I even tried I would be setting myself up for failure. Everytime I tried before, in the past 9 years, nothing would work, so when I started I wasn't too sure I could do it. The weight I lost would always come back quickly.

When I first decided to start this lifestyle change my doctor put me on Phentermine 30 mg. After I came home from the doctor's office, I was checking my emails and decided to look up some info on phentermine. This is when I came across this site. I wanted to read about how the people who were taking it were doing and so I joined the forums and started reading the posts. I was so amazed at all the success stories and how all these people were so helpful, supportive and motivating to each other. I also found a newbies challenge and thought, well maybe I will write a little something and see what happens. I did and ever since I have made the most amazing friends and learned so much! Each and every day I look forward to logging on and seeing how they are all doing and share how I am doing with them. With all the support and motivation from everyone I have become a new person. I am more confident and I actually believe in myself. I have lost 30 pounds in 2 months and never in a million years thought I could do just that... now I know I can reach my goal because I have the support and motivation of so many new wonderful friends here at Each and every one of these women I have met are so special to me. I want to thank them with all my heart and soul.

Since my weight loss journey I have learned to enjoy working out. Me time! I walk between 2-3 miles 3-4 days a week and not only does it help with my weight loss but it helps relieve a lot of stress and my blood pressure has dropped a lot. Before my weight loss journey I was lucky to get a walk once every couple of months. Now I make sure I have the time to spend on myself and get "me time".

I have learned to love healthier foods. It was really hard at first - nothing healthy tasted good to me at all and getting the water down was hard because I never used to drink water! I was used to eating whatever I wanted. I was used to pizza, fast food, soda, chocolate, chips and anything else that are so bad for a person. Now after eating healthier I can't stand the taste of some of these foods. Not only does the taste bother me, but eating these foods now actually makes me feel sick to my stomach. I think soda is the worst. The one thing I am still working on is the chocolate. I still crave it a lot. But I do allow myself a little chocolate 1 day a week. Now my favorite foods are veggies and fruits, which I rarely ate before this. I have also started drinking green tea in the place of coffee in the afternoons. The green tea seems to help me with those lovely afternoon cravings.

I am now a new person and am so excited to improve my health each day. I am also excited to reach out and help those who need just what I was missing - support, motivation, and friends."


A new lifestyle
What is the deciding factor that made you decide to change your lifestyle?
A neighbor had a brush fire that caught their roof on fire. I was gathering hoses and buckets for water and was trying to run them across the field to help save their house. About half way across the field I ran out of breath and felt like I was having a heart attack. This is when I realized that if my girls were ever in a situation where I had to save them, I might not be able to!
What was the most difficult adjustment to your new lifestyle?
Lets see... the most difficult so far has been the temptation to cheat. But I am getting better. Now I just have to learn how to not give in to my yummy iced coffees that are so full of sugar! Also trying to work out every day is still a challenge but I know I can do this! I just have to take one day at a time.
What is the most rewarding part of your new lifestyle?
The way I feel... the way my husband looks at me, and the compliments from my friends and family. With each day, meeting new people and reading their stories on their experiences with their weight loss, I realize I am not alone. I had felt so alone for so long about this problem I had. I have started to feel so much better about myself. Just getting out of that slump and changing the way I thought about things made me realize that I can do this! Now I feel that I not only CAN reach my goal, but that I WILL reach it! I know I can do this! It will take time and hard work but I am ready to do this for my daughters, my husband and for me!
Do you have any words of advice for the community?
Just take one day at a time. If you mess up don't give up! Each and every one of us have messed up and are still losing...the key is to remember that tomorrow is a new day and that we can do this! The mess ups only make us stronger! Remember why you want this so badly and that all the hard work is worth it!
